Metal / Monkey-Human Ancestors Got Music 30 Million Years Ago
« on: November 13, 2013, 08:02:18 AM »
Music skills evolved at least 30 million years ago in the common ancestor of humans and monkeys, according to a new study that could help explain why chimpanzees drum on tree roots and monkey calls sound like singing.


Metal / Slayer's Tom Araya on Texas secession
« on: November 10, 2013, 08:15:23 PM »
Tom Araya loves Texas. The singer/bassist for metal band Slayer should, seeing that he's lived here for 18 years.

"It's a very resourceful state. We could cut ourselves off from the rest of the country and we wouldn't have to be a part of the whole government mess," Araya says speaking from his ranch in north Texas.

At home and away from the noise of amps and screaming metal maniacs, Araya raises cattle. Some people in his community know what he does for a living and don't bother him for autographs. Others don't, and he likes that just fine, too.

"I like Texas because everything is here. We grow our own," he says. "Agriculture, gas, water, it's all here."


Metal / Napalm Death in South China Morning Post

Arguably the world's most extreme musical genre was born in the mid-1980s when heavy metal collided with hardcore punk and gave birth to the grossly mutated offspring known as grindcore.

Grindcore took the distorted, downtuned guitars of heavy metal, the incredibly fast drumbeats and political lyrics of hardcore punk, added demonic growls and shrieks as vocals, put everything into an industrial-sized blender and turned it onto 11.

Metal / Metal fans' personality traits
« on: November 08, 2013, 03:01:37 PM »
Previous studies have reported reliable associations between personality and music preferences, but have tended to rely on cross-genre preferences at the expense of preferences within a single subgenre. We sought to overcome this limitation by examining associations between individual differences and preferences for a specific subgenre of music, namely, contemporary heavy metal. A total of 414 individuals from Britain were presented with clips of 10 tracks of contemporary heavy metal and asked to rate each for liking. Participants also completed measures of the Big Five personality traits, attitudes toward authority, self-esteem, need for uniqueness, and religiosity. A multiple regression showed that stronger composite preference for the heavy metal tracks was associated with higher Openness to Experience, more negative attitudes toward authority, lower self-esteem, greater need for uniqueness, and lower religiosity. In addition, men showed a significantly stronger preference for the tracks than women (d = 0.54). These results are discussed in terms of the psychological needs that contemporary heavy metal fills for some individuals. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)


* higher Openness to Experience
* negative attitudes toward authority
* lower self-esteem
* greater need for uniqueness
* lower religiosity

I call bullshit -- this sounds more like an alt-rock crowd.

Metal / Hipster influence in metal defined
« on: November 07, 2013, 04:02:04 AM »
Over the past 20 years, death metal musicians have changed missions somewhat, combining low, brutal vocal stylings with melodic guitars — almost like mashing together Judas Priest's music with deep, throaty Cookie Monster vocals. But generally the mission has stayed the same for all death metal bands: brand your bands with an almost unreadable logo, be scary and play the hell out of your instruments.

That's where the Black Dahlia Murder changed things up. For the past 10 years they've stayed true to death metal's roots and sound, but have packaged and presented it in more of a tongue-in-cheek, punk-rock way — like they can't be bothered with all of death metal's rules and restrictions.


Metal / Metal/Horror: "Stage Fright"
« on: November 07, 2013, 04:01:11 AM »
Stage Fright:  When teenager Camilla Swanson, a starry-eyed kitchen hand, lands herself a role in the Broadway-bound showcase at the musical theater camp where she works, blood starts to spill.  The camp is being terrorized by "Metal Killer," a masked slasher who screams death metal rock while hunting down every last pretentious cast member of the show.

Wonder who's complaining -- label, band, or random vandals?

Metal / Remasters of reality: How Black Sabbath killed the hippy dream
« on: November 06, 2013, 06:58:14 AM »
Black Sabbath confronted the empty platitudes of the 1960s and, along with Altamont and Charles Manson, almost certainly helped kill off the hippy counterculture.

Guitarist Tony Iommi worked in a Birmingham factory and became fascinated with the sounds and rhythms of the machinery. Eventually he used those industrial influences in the music of Black Sabbath and, along with other pioneers such as Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin, Iommi helped create a noise that would be known as heavy metal.

"We live in a dreary, polluted and gloomy world and it enraged us. For us, the hippie trip, it was bullshit. The only flower adorned a tomb. So we said we were going to fuck up the world with music. "

Ozzy Osbourne, quoted in Cope, 2010: 30

Metal / Underground Never Dies! by by Andrés Padilla
« on: November 04, 2013, 08:41:07 PM »

Underground Never Dies! describes the informal network of fans, bands, labels and writers who stayed connected through postal mail and xeroxed 50-page fanzines. This substituted for the huge media network and financial power of the major labels, who soon found themselves wishing they had an underground also.

With a five-track audio sample of the LP of rarities that accompanies the book, and a 3-page preview of the book itself, the following review digs into the first half of the book:

Metal / Equinox
« on: November 03, 2013, 02:02:27 PM »

Testament guitarist Eric Peterson shows off his vocal chops on the new song ‘Dreamland.’ It’s a collaboration with Celtic metal singer Leah, and appears on her new EP ‘Otherworld,’ which was released yesterday (Oct. 31). The EP is available at iTunes, and you can listen to the track ‘Dreamland’ here.

“It was a real treat to have Eric’s unique vocals on this track,” Leah says. “My original demo went from having a mellow, Clannad-type feel to now almost dancing on the line of black-metal. I hope this is the first of many collaborations to come!”


Metal / Immortal's "Pure Holocaust" is 20 years old today

Our review, written in the year of this CD’s release, captures much of what makes this album great. There are two levels to its greatness, stylistic and content, and while related they cannot be made equivalent.
